Broncos v Dragons, Sunday 4.05pm at ANZ Stadium

Broncos: Meg Ward returns on the wing for Tamika Upton, who moves to the reserves in the only change to the side that was narrowly beaten by the Warriors last week. No alterations to the starting 17 as of Saturday, as Taylor Mapusua and Rosemary Vaimili Tualepai were trimmed from the reserves 24 hours prior to kick-off.

Dragons: The Dragons also appear certain to line up 1-17 as named on Tuesday. No changes to the side that defeated the Roosters last week to make it two in a row to head into the decider full of confidence. Rikeya Horne officially starts on the wing. Player of last year’s grand final, former Bronco Kimiora Nati, remains out through illness, while Stephanie Mooka was cut from the reserves 24 hours before kick-off.
